Best Western Plus Garden Inn
Ranked #5 of 25 Hotels in Santa Rosa
Reviewed August 22, 2006

After reading favorable reviews of the Garden Inn on this site, I booked two nights for a recent family gathering. This motel met or exceeded my expectations in every way. No trouble with the reservation- I booked online and then phoned to confirm. I had a family suite in the back facing the pool. The room was clean, comfortable, and in good condition. There was minimal traffic noise and no noise from the other rooms. The pools were clean (though small) and the landscaping really lovely. My cousin had advised me not to book this motel because he thought the neighborhood wasn't nice, but I had no complaints there either. True it is on a big street with lots of shopping centers, car lots, etc., and no real attractions right nearby, but nothing really objectionable either and a short drive to downtown or the freeway. It was a very comfortable and family-oriented feeling establishment. I would definitely stay there again and recommend to others.

We enjoyed our recent stay at the Best Western Garden Inn. The rooms are very clean, the beds are comfortable, and the location is convenient (right off Hwy. 101).

The hotel is surrounded by lots of automotive-related businesses, but you'll find restaurants and shopping (Starbucks, et al) about a mile south of the hotel on Santa Rosa Blvd. There's also a mall nearby.

In the morning, we got coffee and pastries at Starbucks and then traveled north on Santa Rosa Blvd. to the Luther Burbank Home and Gardens. You can enjoy your breakfast sitting on a bench by the gorgeous fountain. It's a great way to start your day!

Our friends booked rooms for us requesting no stairs for us. when we arrived, they asked if we need handicapped and we said no so they gave us this large suite. (two queens with table, refrigerator, microwave) The room was very nice, quiet and clean. Our friends were very pleased with their standard room.

My husband and I had reserved a family suite through the Best Western website a couple of weeks prior to our stay. When we arrived, we were informed that our room had gone to someone else, then told we had been moved into two separate rooms. I was told this was standard policy. As we were travelling with two children who were not even teens yet, this was not the pleasant, relaxing stay that we had planned. I ended up sleeping in one room with the youngest while my spouse shared a bed with the older child. The rooms were clean, cool, and mostly quiet. The pool, however, had lots of feathers and dead bugs floating in it both in the evening and the following day. We ate at the cafe on-site the next morning. The sole waitress was overwhelmed by the number of people she had to serve, commenting in frustration repeatedly. It took nearly 45 minutes from the time we sat down to when we got our food, and my eggs had several large pieces of shell in them. The staff at the front office told me that the website is often incorrect and will allow reservations for rooms that are already filled. They made a recommendation that I always call the hotel after making on-line reservations to avoid problems in the future.
